The jurors are arguing about how long it took the old man "who drags his foot when he walks, because he had a stroke last year, could get from his bedroom to the front door in 15 seconds." Juror #8 thinks it was 20 seconds. Juror #11 insists it was 15 seconds. There is bickering and arguing. THey decide they might try to reenact it. Finally Juror #3 says, "What do you mean you want to try it? Why didn't his lawyer bring it up if it's so important?"
